With a torsion type of spring the energy is imparted or removed by rotating the spring clockwise or counter clockwise depending upon the direction of usage. With professional installation the complete loading of the torsion spring is controlled by the garage installer and is determined by the weight and size of the garage door that it is operating. When this type of torsion spring fails it remains attached and intact to the location on the horizontal control rod where it was mounted. I have not heard of or seen any torsion spring fly across a garage creating injury from failed components as with the stretched older style garage door springs. This is not to say that injuries have not occurred with the torsion style spring. The installation of this type of spring is generally safe when left to a trained garage door installation professional. Severe and serious injuries have occurred when untrained unqualified individuals have attempted to install or service this type of spring.
Dallas Police Liutenant Barry Payne of the North Central Patrol Division was quoted as saying: "Citizens must realize when they leave a garage door opener in their car in their driveway it is like leaving a key to their house outside where everyone will know where it is. The solution is simple: Park in the garage or dont leave a garage door opener in the car in the driveway. I cant say it any clearer than that. Actually this home invasion could have been avoided in three different ways: the family could have parked their car in the garage they could have parked outside of the garage yet removed the garage door opener from the vehicle OR they could have securely locked the door going from the garage to the home.

There will be times when your door may fail to operate. It happens from time-to-time no matter how well it is installed and maintained so there is no need to panic. More often that not the battery in your garage remote is dead or it is some other simple garage door repair. It is also a good idea to keep additional power back ups with you such as a manual device (generator UPS etc) or additional batteries. Or you can manually open the garage door until you figure out what the is causing the problem.
